Suffragists' Day Marred by Lack of
Foresight on tbe Part of
The way the crowds at the suffrage
Procession yesterday were bandied was
disgrace due to the lack of foresight
and knowledge on the part of the au
thorities. It .s true that the police force
of Washington Is small and that the
Influx of strangers for the Inauguration
makes It necessary to guard all parts of
tho city more carefully than at any
other time, but it might have been fore
seen that the parade of yesterday coming
Just before the great parade to-day
would bring practically the same crowds
as to-day. and would therefore need as
large a force of police and soldiers to
properly handle It and to protect the
spectators. The suffragists repeatedly
appealed to the authorities, reminding
them of this and asking proper pro
tection, which was refused without any
good reason. The few policemen detailed
to tho work did their Individual duties
well, but their small number rendered
their work comparatively Ineffectual, and
the primary principles of handling crowds
at processions sem to have been over
looked by the authorities
Vehicles without a police pass (which
with proper police regulation should not
be necesary for the favored few) were
denied passage through Seventeenth
Street, which should have been kept
open to enable them to get to the south
side of Pennsylvania Avenue, and all
streets leading Into Pennsylv anla Av enue
on both sides of It should also have
been kept open for free passage of both
pedestrians and vehicles up to a tew
minutes before the approach of the procession.
The wldtlt required by a procession
should be determined beforehand and
ropes placed on the confines thereof,
whether on tbe edge of the sidewalks
or out In the roadway, as would bo need
ed In Pennsvlvania Avenue. In this lat
ter case Iron posts for ropes, with bases
such as are used In New York for the
handling of traffic should be placed on
the roadway with holes pierced In them
through which heated spikes could be
driven Into the asphalt, the slight dam
age being easily repaired afterward. In
side of the ropes no one should be al
lowed to go except the police and troops
In charge of tho parade.
Forcing pedestrians hack from the
front of the line Is not practical without
risk, and therefore the bulk of the police
force should be about ten lect back of
the pipes In order to keep a free pas
sage way open for pedestrians. It has
been nported that other cities nearby
are o send men to assist the police
hero to-day. and that bodies of troops
will augment them This Is right and
proper, hut they should have been pro
vided for both days, and the cardinal
principles alluded to above have been
observed, for surely our guests of yes

killed the two desperadoes, who figured
In on of the most sensational murders

bureau, and Detective William McXelvey
yesterday were standing In the Union

Swinehart carefully scanned the faces
of the arriving passengers and "made'
the face of Eddie Kelley. one of the
most notorious wire tappers In the
United States and Europe. Kelley dis
covered that Swinehart knew hbn and
tried to give the tip to six members
or his gang who came here for the pur
pose of making a big1 clean-up. Swine
hart yelled to Linden and McKelrey. and
the three closed In on the gang. "
All were taken into custody and "held
up- In the First precinct station. Here
they were closely questioned and ad
mitted they stopped here on their way
from Palm Beach to New York. They
also admitted they had left Palm Beach
on the solicitation of the officials there
The "crooks" were soon surrounded by
a big delegation of the out-of-town de
tectives, many of whom had never seen
Kelley and his gang.
They were given the alternative of be
ing locked up as suspicious persona or
taking tbe first train out of the city.
They chose the latter, and were care
